  • Accumulation of Poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) Helps Bacterial Cells to Survive Freezing 

    Obruča, Stanislav; Sedláček, Petr; Mravec, Filip; Kučera, Dan; Benešová, Pavla; Márová, Ivana (PLoS, 2016-06-17)
    Accumulation of polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) seems to be a common metabolic strategy adopted by many bacteria to cope with cold environments. This work aimed at evaluating and understanding the cryoprotective effect of PHB. ...
  • Drug Release Kinetics of Electrospun PHB Meshes 

    Kundrát, Vojtěch; Černeková, Nicole; Kovalčík, Adriána; Enev, Vojtěch; Márová, Ivana (MDPI, 2019-06-14)
    Microbial poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) (PHB) has several advantages including its biocompatibility and ability to degrade in vivo and in vitro without toxic substances. This paper investigates the feasibility of electrospun PHB ...
  • Study of Metabolic Adaptation of Red Yeasts to Waste Animal Fat Substrate 

    Szotkowski, Martin; Byrtusová, Dana; Němcová, Andrea; Vysoká, Marie; Rapta, Marek; Shapaval, Volha; Márová, Ivana (MDPI, 2019-11-19)
    Carotenogenic yeasts are non-conventional oleaginous microorganisms capable to utilize various waste substrates. In this work 4 red yeast strains (Rhodotorula, Cystofilobasidium and Sporobolomyces sp.) were cultivated in ...
  • Use of Lignocellulosic Materials for PHA Production 

    Obruča, Stanislav; Benešová, Pavla; Márová, Ivana (Croatian Society Of Chemical Engineers, 2015-07-27)
    Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) are very promising materials that might serve as an environmentally friendly alternative to petrochemical plastics. The main obstacle preventing PHAs from entering the market massively is the ...
